Welcome

Welcome to Bulbapedia, PikachuLugia!

As a new user, you may wish to learn a few things that will be useful in your editing:

  • For a basic overview of wiki code, see this page.
  • Read over the style primer before making your edits. It is a basic outline of Bulbapedia style. For a more in-depth set of rules, see the manual of style.
  • Keep an eye on the Messages from the Editor on the main page, to stay informed on current events on Bulbapedia.
  • The word Pokémon is spelled with a capital P and an accented é. The é can be accessed by holding Alt and typing either 130 or 0233 on a Windows computer, and by using Option + e, then e again on a Mac. Otherwise, you can easily click it in the character palette below the editbox.
  • The word Poké Ball is spelled as two words. The "Poké" part is identical to the four beginning letters in "Pokémon"; "Ball" is spelled with a capital B. The spelling "Pokéball" arises frequently, but is incorrect.
  • The word "you" and all forms of it should not be used on encyclopedic pages unless it is a quote from Pokémon or other media. Bulbapedia is an encyclopedia, not a walkthrough.
  • On talk pages, please sign your comments with four tildes (~~~~).
  • The use of link templates is official policy.
  • If you happen to spot a vandal in the recent changes that has not been dealt with, please see this page for how to deal with it.
  • A list of pages that are linked to, but have not been created, can be found at this page. A list of short articles that may require more information can be found here, while a list of articles that need improvement can be found here.
  • For a future capture, release, trade, or evolution of a Pokémon belonging to a main character of the anime, please do not create or move the page to reflect your suspicions, even if they are shared by many others. Policy here is to wait until the episode in which the event happens takes place is aired, unless there is substantial evidence for the suspicion (such as Brock's Happiny being held in his arms).
  • Image uploading is done on Bulbagarden Archives, a separate wiki accessible through the toolbox in the sidebar. This is done so that both Bulbapedia and Bulbanews have access to the images uploaded. To activate your account at the Archives and Bulbanews, please login there using the same username and password you use here on Bulbapedia.
  • If you want to make a page about a character you made up, please create it at User:PikachuLugia/(name), not merely (name). Bulbapedia's main namespace is reserved for actual, official Pokémon, items, characters, and locations. Also, please try to make sure that subpages are not categorized by templates used within.
  • Having said this, please make sure that you do contribute adequately to the main namespace. Bulbapedia is not MySpace or Facebook.
  • All users are allowed to edit the userspace 3 times a day. If you edit more than 3 times, you may be subjected to a warning. If you ignore the warning, you will be given three chances to comply. If you do not comply, your ability to modify the userspace will be revoked for a period of time.
  • Unless prior permission is given, no user is permitted to edit another user's page. Furthermore, edits to other users' pages are permitted only if there are problems that spread to other parts of Bulbapedia, such as broken links that appear on the wanted pages, switching out duplicate images that appear on the Archives, etc.
  • Fan fictions, missions, riddles, games, and anything else deemed not suitable for the wiki will not be allowed. If you would like to add something, but do not know if it is acceptable, ask an administrator.
  • A list of administrators that you can contact in case of a problem can be found here.

Thank you, and have a good time editing here! --- s.Combusken 05:03, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

Bulbapedia:Link templates. Please use them. Θρtιmαtum♏Talk|Links 08:23, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

Please

Stop adding useless speculation on trivia and user the Preview Button! Cause you're going to clog the server.--Coolピカチュウ! 01:17, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Preview Button

Use the preview button. You've been told that, and it will clog the Recent Changes and the server, disallowing the admins for finding something like a vandal.--PsychicRider 02:00, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Once again... Please, use the preview button, editing the same thing numerous times to fix small errors clogs up the Recent Changes. Using the preview button will allow you to fix any mistakes before submitting your change. - Kogoro | Talk to me | 07:19, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
HAVE YOU USED IT BEFORE!?!?!? It wasn't even that important overall...ht14 03:43, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
Yeah. It shouldn't take five edits to do this. --((Marton imos)) 03:48, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

é

Please remember, when spelling Pokémon, use the accented e, instead of a normal e. - Kogoro | Talk to me | 06:25, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Trivia

Don't go on adding trivia which are useless like the one you added for Lapras.--Diby 10:08, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
